Kevin Mazur/WireImage via ABC(NICE, France) -- As a warmup for her headlining spot this weekend at England's famous Glastonbury festival, Beyonce took the stage in Nice, France, Monday night for her first concert in well over a year.  In addition to her own hits, Beyonce performed quite a unique medley for fans at the concert.  She started with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," moved onto Prince's "The Beautiful Ones" -- a track she performed during her 2009 tour -- and finished with, of all things, Kings Of Leon's "Sex on Fire."  The video of the medley was available online for a brief time, but was then pulled by Beyonce's people.

Beyonce and her all-female band will continue their brief tour of France Wednesday in the city of Lille and then Thursday in the city of Amneville.  Then it's on to Glastonbury, where B will share the stage on Sunday with the likes of rock legend Paul Simon.

Kings of Leon's Tour Bus Catches Fire; London Show Postponed

Photo Courtesy - RCA Records(LONDON) -- A Kings of Leon show that was set to take place at London's O2 Arena was postponed after one of the band's tour buses caught on fire.

The BBC reports the blaze was extinguished by firefighters and the venue's sprinkler system before it was able to spread.  No one was injured in the fire.

A spokesperson for the O2 said the fire didn't affect the seating area but the show had to be postponed and rescheduled due to "insufficient time to rig the arena" for the performance.

Tickets for the show sold out months ago.  A new date is expected to be announced soon.
